Reflections on the changing seasons, and harvesting the gifts.
Happiness trees indeed! The colours are fabulous. I noticed the pohutukawa trees budding up around the lake. Summer is just around the corner.
The pohutukawas will look spectacular around the lake Joan. It's exciting to see those silver buds getting ready to break out.
What a vibrant display from the bottle brush. I can't wait to see your pictures when the pohutukawas are in bloom.
I love the idea of happiness trees, I will treasure this thought. I was in Whakatane a few days ago and the pohutukawa are already starting to bloom there.
Fabulous, Juliet. We don't get bottlebrush growing here, so, it is a true gift to be able to see it in your photos - and to know that you have walked by them and received such joy. Isn't it amazing how something so bright and living can bring such joy?
Thank you Anne, Marilyn and Penny. Yes, the bottlebrush flowers are certainly vibrant, particularly so this year. The pohutukawas are not far behind, given what Marilyn has seen on the east coast. I'm hoping we are in for an equally bright flowering along all of our coastline this summer.
The Tuis will be delirious with all these bottle brushes.Mine are almost out. Perhaps if it warmed up they would burst forth.Your photos do justice to the vibrancy of this display..
Thank you Lynley, and I hope the warmth spreads your way very soon. It's true, the tuis love these flowers.
